The brands main distinguishing factors are the high concentration of active ingredients, and the quality of neem, used across the product line. Fifty-eight percent of products include two or more forms of neem…including 100% organic neem seed oil (highest standard of organic certification), organic neem leaf tea as the product base and/or the use of concentrated organic supercritical extracts. The advanced supercritical extraction process is known for producing the cleanest, most concentrated, and unaltered complete bouquet of a plants constituents (oils, pigments and resins) in extract form. No other neem-based brand currently offers products which include supercritical extracts.
What is Neem?
Neem oil is rich in fatty acids, such as palmitic, linoleic, and oleic acids, which help support healthy skin. While neem oil is generally applied to the scalp or skin to treat conditions like dandruff and acne, the extract of the neem leaf is typically taken orally. The leaf of the plant also provides health benefits. The leaves contain plant compounds called flavonoids and polyphenols, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.

What are the benefits of Neem?
Hair Care: Neem is known for not only alleviating dryness and itchiness, but also for providing moisture so your hair looks super healthy year-round.
Oral Care: Neem bark and leaf extract is most effectively used fight oral plaque buildup and prevent gingivitis. Mouthwash containing Neem is a remedy for tooth decay and to maintain healthy gums.
Skin Care: Neem oil is filled with ingredients that benefit the skin, like vitamin E and essential fatty acids, which make it a great natural method to fight off dryness. Research has found it can penetrate deeply into the skin, healing the cracks that occur from severe dryness and making sure all your moisture stays locked in. It also has antibacterial properties making it a great acne treatment.
Digestive Health: Neem promotes a healthy digestive system by protecting the stomach, aiding in elimination, and removing toxins and noxious bacteria. Its leaves are often used to treat heartburn and indigestion.
What are Supercritical extracts?
Extracts are substances made by separating raw plant material into concentrated form. Depending upon the plant material used, extracts can be made by a number of processes, including: • Cold-pressing plant material (typically citrus) • Steam distillation • “Supercritical” liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) distillation • Other chemical solvent extraction (i.e. alcohol distillation, etc.) Steam distillation is one of the most common processes used. However, supercritical extracts are becoming more common. They are considered to be potentially superior to traditional steam distillations because the plant material is extracted at much lower temperatures, which may help preserve a fuller range of constituents from the original plant. That’s because the high temperatures required to create steam from water (100 degrees C / 212 degrees F) can potentially damage or destroy some of the constituents in the plant material—thereby altering the material from its original form. Supercritical extraction uses CO2 instead, bringing it to its liquid “supercritical” state at much lower temperatures (90-100 degrees F). That lower processing temperature helps ensure that the final extract contains a fuller spectrum of constituents than are typically derived from steam distillations. CO2 extracts are believed to be closer to the original source material than stream extracts.
How Supercritical extracts are made?
1. Liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) is pumped into an extractor tank containing plant material.
2. Particles of the plant material are suspended in the liquid CO2.
3. The particles are separated from the CO2. The CO2 is returned to the tank.
4. Then the final extract is collected for use. Supercritical extracts are very concentrated. It takes approximately 250 pounds of plant material to create 1 pound of supercritical Neem extract, for example. CO2 extracts are additionally free from organic solvents like hexane, acetone and toluene. The original plant material we use for our supercritical Neem extracts is also organic to help ensure the final extract does not contain chemical pesticide residue, either.
